Hi there! I’m Sarah, owner of Away From the Box and just a small town girl living in a… well, you get it. I live in Texas with my fiance, Kevin, and dog, Milo, who is often referred to as “The Menace” or “Hey you, stop that!” And while I enjoy many aspects in life, there are two things I love above all: my family and food. I wont tell you in which order.
Too many times have I made and LOVED a recipe, and then lost it in the abyss of my busy lifestyle and constant need to clean. So I created this website to both save my tried-and-true recipes for myself and to also share them with people like you, the amazing, world-class individual that stumbled upon this page. I’m also all about shameless self promotion.
So what’s with the name, you might ask? Away From the Box? Why not Out of the Box, as the saying goes? One, that name was already taken, and we wont bring it up again because I was deeply upset and it’s like rubbing salt in the wound (mmm, salt). And two, I chose Away From the Box because I am moving away from using processed foods. While not always entirely avoidable, most of my recipes will use fresh ingredients NOT from a box or can (lookin’ at you, Hamburger Helper) but can still totally be doable on a weeknight. I do not follow or endorse any kind of diet or meal plan, but I do believe in maintaining health through such ingredients. My point is, I’m not telling you how to live your life, and my recipes do not replace any sort of advice given by a doctor. You do you, boo-boo. But if you enjoy food and my oddball sense of humor, you’ll be right at home.
